Buffalo Bill Birthday Celebration

Noon – 4 p.m.

Celebrate the birthday of one of America’s greatest legends, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody. In the grand tradition of parties, the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave will host the annual Buffalo Bill Birthday Bash on Sunday, February 26 from noon to 4 p.m. Sing Happy Birthday, eat cake, play games and maybe even learn a thing or two on this very festive FREE day.
After the ceremonial cutting of the cake at noon, wander through Museum exhibits and visit with costumed volunteers. At 1:30 p.m. the action moves back outside for the annual Buffalo-Chip Tossing Contest. Prizes will be awarded in both an adult and child’s category.
The annual celebration kicks off the opening of the museum’s newest exhibit "A Better Place Could Hardly Have Been Chosen," an in-depth look at Cody's burial on Lookout Mountain.

For more information call 303-526-0744.
